Why Is An Annual Physical So Important?

Annual physicals are frequently something most of us put off or don't enjoy doing. But a regular yearly physical checkup is the most important way to not only ensure your continued health, but it's also a chance to ask any nagging health questions that have been bothering you and to further strengthen your relationship with your physician. Dr. Ishaaya takes special care to thoroughly examine and test your health while listening to your concerns and health goals. Some of the most concrete reasons why annual physicals are so important include:

  • Often health issues don't present any symptoms
  • Gaining a clear picture of your current health
  • Setting health goals for the future
  • Updating your vaccinations and medical records
  • Screening for cancer and other chronic diseases
  • Identifying health issues early before they become a major problem
  • Achieving peace of mind

Annual Physicals FAQ

What are some helpful questions to ask during an annual checkup?

To get an in-depth view of your overall health, you may want to ask several questions. These can include: do I need certain immunizations, are my current medications still good, how can I maintain a healthy lifestyle for the future, or is this normal? All of these will help you feel more confident in your health. Please feel free to let us know if you have additional questions or concerns.

What should I do before my annual physical checkup?

Before your physical checkup, we recommend a few things to help you feel prepared. These usually include bringing any medical history documents with you and a current list of medications. Additionally, please answer any questions about your family medical history. In some cases, if we plan on performing a blood panel, you may need to fast before your appointment.

Will insurance cover my full medical examinations?

Because full medical examinations are preventive exams, patients often receive a free visit with their insurance. However, we will confirm this with your plan before coming in for your appointment. If you do not have insurance, we can go over your options.
